Like PX said Snorlax is very slow, scarf is useless.
If you want a Choice item go with Choice band. But I would go with CurseLax I give you two movesets one Choice Band set and one CurseLax set


enter image description here
Banded Snorlax (Snorlax) @ Choice Band
Trait: Thick Fat

EVs 252 Atk / 4 Hp / 252 SDef
Adamant Nature

Body Slam
Earthquake
Crunch
Fire Punch

CurseLax (Snorlax) @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick fat

EVs 208 HP / 124 Atk / 176 SDef
Careful Nature

Curse
Body Slam
Earthquake
Crunch

No, it is not a good set.

  1. Snorlax is VERY slow. Even with a scarf. it will outspeed very little. And the things it can now outspeed, it can use it's massive SpDef and Hp to wall, or it's good attack to KO.

    1. This set appears to be a mixed set. but snorlax's SpAtk is very low. Even with EV's it isn't going to do much damage. A full attack set or a stall set will server it much better.

    2. As I probably hinted at by now, Snorlax provides excellent support as a Special wall. Although not as much as Chansey or Blissey, it can use much more versatile sets that stall just as effectively. As well as switching to offence when the time calls.

The set I suggest is this one:

Snorlax @ Chesto Berry
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Rest
- Whirlwind
- Body Slam
- Pursuit

I like this set. although their are many alternatives to use.

Hope I helped ;D

If you want to keep using a Choice item, run Bulky Band. One of my favourite Snorlax sets.
uuhh,ok.ill try to run a physical set with $norlax.and i cant get thick fat on snorlax.i have immunity
Glad to help! And yeah a Band set might work out well.
